Bottle at home. Poured a light copper Brown colour with a slight tanned head. Nose has caramel, toffee, almonds and nuts, malts, and earthy. Not my kind of beer

Pours a beautiful amber color with a dark, creamy head. A bold malty biscuit nose that opens with a smooth malty taste with a hearty aftertaste. Great brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2015
On tap at Kalahana. Clear copper with some red highlights. Big pine and danky resin aromas on the nose. Taste is more balanced with some caramel sweetness coming through but the leans toward the hoppy side. Very well done amber. Nice bitter finish that lingers. Really solid.

NikkTwist (2008) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Draft at Eulogy. Kicking the keg from a Speakeasy Philly Beer Week event. Mostly clear medium-dark brown pour with a soft foamy off-white head. Some nice lace. Bigger and darker caramel malts than expected for an Amber Ale. Reads more like a Brown Ale with a touch more hops (does not feel overly hoppy to me.) Best others of the style but not as good as the darker Speakeasy brews. Nice dry finish.

Restrained aroma in a deep brown pour. Full bodied taste tends to the hoppy side with a crisp clean bitter finish.

On tap in Palo Alto. Nice caramel body with medium head. Nose is malty, caramel and sweet. Taste also nice and malty. With crisp finish.

rosenbergh (8556) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Draught at the Speakeasy, San Francisco, CA.
Clear amber colour with a small to mid-size light tan head. Sweet caramel malt, mild nuts and mild hops in the aroma. Sweet caramel malt, mild hops and mild bitterness in the flavour. Clean and nice amber ale.

Great aroma of floral hops. Taste is very well balanced. Malty but the hops come through. Very enjoyable beer.

BeAndrews (30) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a hazy bubbly amber with a small diminishing fizzy white head. Nicely balanced aroma and flavour of mild hops and caramel malt. Quite carbonated and the body’s a tad thin.

JaKeAFC (711) - ITALY - APR 11, 2015
Pint at dinosaur bbq Harlem, NY. Red colot slightly hazed short white head quickly dissipating. Dusty roasted malts with woody tones and hints of caramel with heavy bittering hops. Taste is quitw bitter dusty dry finish average carbonation. Overall the feel is very raw crude, homemade. I guess they intended that way, undefined and wild.
